Here is the current list of fonts on my system.

ttf-indic-fonts					install

That one is both the source package of all fonts....and a virtual
binary package, depending on all others.

The source package is maintained by Soumyadip Modak
<soumyadip@softhome.net> and sponsored by Jaldhar H. Vyas

Jaldhar being the "soul" of debian-in-workers, I think that getting
the udebs will be easy..:-)

Soumyadip is not going to be available for the next week or so but I can certainly do this.

ttf-devanagari-fonts				install

I'll try to have a closer look at that one, used by Hindi. Devanagari
is probably the most widely used script so we'll probably need that font.

Yes, as well as Hindi, it is used by Marathi and Sanskrit.

...but others also..:-)

ttf-bangla-fonts				install

That's an old one now replaced by the following package.

ttf-bengali-fonts				install
ttf-gujarati-fonts				install
ttf-kannada-fonts				install
ttf-malayalam-fonts				install
ttf-oriya-fonts					install
ttf-punjabi-fonts				install
ttf-tamil-fonts					install
ttf-telugu-fonts				install

To cover all the languages of India, you would need all these packages.

Should I make one udeb with a font from each script or 8 different udebs with one font each.

Debian-installer currently uses unifont doesn't it? Is this opentype? If so would it make sense to add Indic glyphs to it?
